Chinese Lanterns Make a Sunny Day

Welcome! A third post for today.  As the month nears the end, I am trying to enter some challenges that end soon.  This card was made for the challenge at Power Poppy to use Kraft colored paper for a project.  I decide to use Power Poppy stamps from the Sunny Harvest set.  I tried several mediums on Kraft CS including Distress Oxide Inks and Markers without success and then used pencils to color the image after stamping with Memento Rich Cocoa ink on the Kraft.  This came out to my liking.  I added Glossy Accents to the red berries and used Sakura Clearstar Pen on the Lanterns.  I cut the image with a Spellbinders Die and attached it to a Layer of Metallic Copper CS and then to a layer of Rusty Orange CS and a card base of Green.
 The Power Poppy sentiment was stamped with Versamark and embossed with Copper Metallic EP.  The Copper CS and EP look really good in real life and add a lot to my card.  I wished that they showed better in the photo.
Power & Spark Challenge: Get Krafty
Simon Monday Challenge: Heavy Metal - use metal embellishments for example, charms, or metallic embossing powders, card stock, foils etc. I used metallic EP and CS.
Simon Wednesday Challenge: Simon says Anything Goes
Mod Squad Challenge: Fall Colors

Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa

How fun that we used the same stamp for the challenge. I love Power Poppy stamps but don't have many. I love the way you colored this. The deepness of the orange in the chinese lanterns makes them look very realistic. Have a great weekend!

What a beautiful card! I really love those metallic touches you added, which give it such a regal and festive feel. I like how it's filled with gorgeous Fall colors, yet it is such a creative and original idea. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
